    Need simple feedback for below 4 colors. Like or Dislike.
    Since these are all PS images, please don't bash me for the crappy quality.
    No such actual items. This is not a spam commercial. Just need some feedback from you guys as I wanna do custom colors based on Valenti aftermarket tails.

    -Clear Len with white or maroon red tube?

    -Smoked lens with white or maroon red tube?

    Please chime in.
    If this violates the forum rule, I'll delete it!

    Can't really say without seeing what they'd look like lit up. Got any that shows what they look like powered on?

    No, because even official Valenti does not have such color options. All images are PS'd.

    #2, clear lens and red tube, all day for me.

    Personally, oem+ is the way. Anything that detracts from oem standard night is a boo. Our cars are small enough on the roads - smoked tails further reduce their visibility.

    And I know this isn’t a for sale thread, but I’d order a set of those if available. Or #1.

    Yeah #2 does it for me, the others not so much.

    nb: I've spent thousands modding and personalizing cars over the past 20 years and have never altered a taillight; just never thought any of my cars needed attention there.

    Good luck all the same!

    Smoked lenses are NOT good.....unless you put in MUCH brighter bulbs......and sometimes that will melt the lenses.

    Almost everywhere in the US, smoked lenses are ILLEGAL.......and the laws don't care about the resulting brightness.
    They assume that it will be inadequate, which usually IS the case.
